I spent an inspiring four hours watching the making of Blade Runner at the weekend, and as a designer, what really stood out for me was the designed world that Ridley Scott and his art team created. Every detail is lovingly attended to and it creates such a seamless and immersive landscape. While it is a bleak dystopia, it is graphically lush, and I thought I'd share some of the logos from the documentary. I couldn't find any better examples on the the web so apologies for the ramshackle shots, but hopefully you get an idea.
Take a look at this poster for the new Michel Winterbottom movie, The Killer Inside Me. Why is Jessica Alba’s name directly over Casey Affleck’s body? And why is his name the closest to Kate Hudson, and Kate Hudson’s name the closest to Jessica Alba? This makes no sense.
Two basic laws of design are being ignored here: Proximity and Pattern.
A selection of Vintage Logos from some old adult movies. Some of these are absolutely fantastic, I love the glow in Angel Burns and the nice Paramount pastiche - surely one of the original Adbusters? You can see more here. If you like this you should aslo check out the Justice 'DVNO' video.
